We just missed the call for papers from the International Academy for Design and Health in Brisbane but worth consideration for next year. It is an organization also trying to develop interdisciplinary education in design and healthcare fields. See their website at http://www.designandhealth.com for research information and published articles. IADH has connections to architecture and in particular Texas A&M University, but do not seem to have as much involvement with industrial and communication design academic partners. Opportunities may be available and worth considering.
